Take Real Rest

Take Real Rest

When you are tired from doing work, don't pick up your phone to scroll mindlessly. Instead take Real Rest like walking, or a few pushups, or just looking out of the window. This will replenish your energy and will feel refreshing instead of tiring the brain even more.

Zeigarnic Effect

Zeigarnic Effect

Our brains remember unfinished tasks better than finished ones, so that we continue to think about our unsolved problems. This can be used to our benefit in many ways. For example, take a break for some time from a difficult probelm. Surprisingly you may have the answer to it while you resume it some time later.

Common Sense

Common Sense

"Common Sense isn't common action. "

Many times we know the answer to a solution from common sense but we don't do what is needed to be done.

Like for example we know that a headache can be cured by putting our phone aside and taking a break, but we continue to use our phones anyway. So do things which seem common sense, instead of undermining them due to their simplicity.

Why Is It So Hard To Focus?

Why Is It So Hard To Focus?

Most humans have trouble focusing on one task. While we attribute this to our laziness, it actually has an evolutionary reason. Early humans always had to stay aware of their surroundings for potential danger (like a tiger lurking around). So our brains have evolved to always have their attention scattered to be aware of their surroundings, hence making it hard for us to focus on one single task.

So don't go too hard on yourself and try to improve your focus progreseively.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
